Description


The Pedersoli™ 1853 Enfield 3-Band Whitworth Rifle is a .451 caliber percussion model that is a reproduction of the 3-band rifle manufactured in the 1850's. In the summer of 1854 Sir Joseph Whitworth was commissioned by the English war office to engineer a rifle to replace the P53 Enfield and started work on a .451 caliber hexagonal bore rifle. By 1859, Whitworth was touring with his new creation and competing in shooting competitions across Europe, the new .451 Caliber Whitworth Rifle outperformed all competitors. In fact, during the first meeting of the British Rifle Association, Queen Victoria used the Whitworth rifle to hit a target 400 yards away. The Enfield 3 Band Withworth Rifle was also widely used by the South during the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865. The Confederate Army quickly realized that the long distance capabilities of the rifle and equipped an elite group of snipers with the rifle, these soldiers were referred to as the “Whitworth Sharpshooters.”
